My favorite is this Boulder Colorado show. The Rider is epic.

NICE!

Great sound quality and super on-point playing. The transition jam from Scarlet to Fire is pretty sweet. Brent's got a great tone on the organ and he and Jerry have a nice section together right before Fire.

Never heard this before! Thanks for the heads up!

I concur in waves...others of note, 10-11-1983 is a great version and a long jammy version is 04-14-1982, definitely worth a listen...

Haha.

By the way, what I really meant is "best Brent-era China>Rider." I like to divide the eras up by keyboardist.

but, given this restriction, all of these suggestions apply. though the 79 one takes the cake for me.
